Holiday Tips For Pet Parents (thanks Innovet! ):

  • Locate your nearest 24/7 Emergency Vet and get the phone number into every family member's cell phones.
  • Make sure pets are micro-chipped and those chips are registered to you with UTD info. 
  • Pet-Proof your tree and watch for dogs ingesting needles.
  • Dogs don't have a concept of size. Keep extra treat portions small. 
  • Make sure dog-friendly foods are free of sauces.
  • Immediately clean up ribbons and bows after opening gifts. If you notice ribbon hanging out your pets rear end, DO NOT PULL. Call your vet. 
  • Post a list of poisonous foods on your fridge to make it easy for guests who may not know what is unsafe for dogs. Items to include:
    • Chocolate
    • Nuts (Peanuts OK)
    • Garlic
    • Onion
    • Grapes
    • Raisins
    • Currents
    • Rhubarb leaves 
    • Peach pits, Cherry Pits, Apricot Pits, Apple and Pear seeds
    • Alcohol
    • Coffee
    • Tea
    • Mushrooms
    • Avocados
    • Mustard seeds 
    • GREEN Tomato parts (leaves and stems)
    • Xylotol (In sweet treats, Candy Canes, Chewing Gum & Peanut Butter)
    • Yeast dough

Also, pet people need to stick together. If you see a pet who may be lost as long as it's safe your you to do so, please help them!
